Olympic tickets sale a 'shambles'.

THE ticketing system for London 2012 has been labelled a "bit of a shambles" by triple Olympic gold medallist Bradley Wiggins.

The 31-year-old cyclist, who is aiming to medal at his fourth successive Games next year, says many of his family will miss out seeing him compete.

He said: "I think, as most of the public feels, it's a bit of a shambles.

"It's a shame when you know what works so successfully in other Olympic Games, certainly Athens, that they couldn't implement those ticket systems here.

"I'd love to have my family there. I grew up in London and would love to have my mum and everyone there watching me but you know that's the way it is I suppose, you just get on with it."

Organisers have guaranteed athletes that they will be able to buy two tickets for every session they compete in.
